How we gather information from users. The collection and storage of information depends on the page or portion of the Site that you are visiting, your particular activities on the Site and the services provided. You can visit many pages on the Site without providing any information. Some pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of the Site, sign up for membership, request certain features or make a purchase.
We do not collect personally identifiable information through the Site unless that information is provided by you during registration for various features on the Site. Information required to participate in such features may vary but will typically include your first and last name; address including city, state, zip code and country; daytime and evening phone numbers; and e-mail address; and, in the case of making purchases, a credit card number and expiration date. You may also be requested to provide a username and password for certain features.
The Site also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. It may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular feature while visiting the Site. As we adopt and/or implement additional technology, it may also gather information through other means. You can choose not to provide us with certain information. Adjusting your browser settings to reject cookies is one example, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the Site, may require you to re-enter your user name and password, and/or not allow you to customize the Site features to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect. We will use your information only as permitted by law. Information that does not personally identify you (“Aggregated Information”) may be used in various ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which Site pages are visited most or what features of the Site are most attractive to users. Aggregated Information may be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
As the Company continues to develop and grow, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, any time we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of any outstanding balances you may owe to us, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Security of personal information. The Site has undertaken various security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. We have and will continue to undertake physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information.
Only those employees and hired professionals (e.g., lawyers) needed to carry out requisite business functions will have access to information for individual Site users. Employees and hired professionals violating these privacy policies will be subject to disciplinary action.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements. The Site expects its partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users, however, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through the Site, operate pursuant to their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. During your visit to the Site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on the Site, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. You may also be introduced to, or be able to access, information, web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties while using the Site. The Site is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
California Privacy Rights. If you are a resident of California and have an established business relationship with a company, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 may give you the right to request an Information-Sharing Disclosure that would include a list of all third parties who have received your personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes in the past year. This disclosure would also list the types of personally identifiable information that were disclosed to these third parties.
As stated above, the Company generally does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties unless you opt-in to such disclosure by registering or signing up for one of our services. Additionally, the Company provides you with the ability to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, the Company qualifies for the alternative option and we have chosen to provide you with a cost-free means of exercising your opt-out right. As such, we are not required to provide you with an Information-Sharing Disclosure listing all of the third parties with whom we may have shared your personal information during the past year.
To exercise your opt-out right, please follow the procedure described below. There is no charge to opt-out.
- Opt-Out Procedure. If you are a California resident and wish to exercise your right to opt-out from the Company sharing your personally identifiable information with third-parties for their direct marketing purposes, please send your written request for a California Customer Choice Notice and opt-out form to the email address in Section 8 below
